Natalie's Score: 92/100

From Pomerol in the Bordeaux wine region, Château Rouget 2016 is an elegant, polished and full-bodied 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc produced from organically grown grapes and is in the process for becoming biodynamic. This Chateau is situated between L'Eglise Clinet and Le Gay and The Labruyère family are the owners and producers of this silky-textured, beautiful Pomerol. Rich with dark berry, nutty, cedar brush spice and chocolate flavours intense on the palate, tannins are focussed and pleasantly chewy. Good now, better in 2024 and drink to 2033.

Food pairings: prime rib steaks from the grill, venison filet mignon, roast partridge.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
